Johnson Controls has released Metasys 10.0, an upgrade to its building automation solution featuring faster responses to critical alarms and new integrations with fire detection, security and lighting systems.
Metasys 10.0 introduces new integrations with C·CURE 9000 Access Control and victor Video Management Systems, and simpler integrations with SIMPLEX Fire Systems and with lighting systems from leading lighting providers.
A new Metasys Application Programming Interface (API) enables data to be securely extracted from Metasys 10.0 and integrated with Johnson Controls or third-party data visualization tools for data analysis and reporting.
Several new hardware devices were also added to Metasys 10.0, including:
- A new 4-in-1 network sensor series with the ability to sense temperature, humidity, CO2 and occupancy – all with one sensor
- A new TEC3000 thermostat controller with colour touchscreen
- Two new equipment controllers with removable screw terminal blocks for easy installation, high capacity memory and fast processing
Another innovative feature is Ethernet ring topology support for Metasys IP equipment controllers. Delivered as part of Johnson Controls’ collaboration with Cisco, it allows controllers to be configured in a ring network, improving system reliability and resiliency.
As part of the new Metasys release, the Metasys User Interface (UI) introduces new features including the ability for users to schedule reports to be delivered via email and save and execute report templates on demand, reducing time spent configuring and providing reports.
